Annual Shuswap Trail Alliance fundraiser goes online for 2024

 

The Shuswap, Secwépemc Nation Territory, British ColumbiaThe Shuswap Trail Alliance (STA) will once again be hosting its much-anticipated annual fundraiser February 2-11. While you may not be able to dust of your dancing shoes with them this winter, you can still dance on over the silent auction site.

 

The community is invited to join them for the 2024 Shuswap Trails Fundraiser at https://trellis.org/2024-shuswap-trails-fundraiser. Last year’s hybrid event attracted close to 500 guests, while the online auction engaged hundreds more, and raised over $60,000 in support of STA trail projects throughout the region.

 

Just like last year it’s going to be ten days of supporting trails throughout the Shuswap AND supporting our local businesses. The 2024 online silent auction format will again include enhanced opportunities to feature local businesses, item photographs, and website links to encourage people to support local businesses. There will be a 50/50 raffle, with tickets already available for purchase online at the Trellis site – if all the tickets sell someone could win $10,000!!!

 

The February fundraiser lays the foundation that allows the Shuswap Trail Alliance to work with regional partners throughout the year. The funds are leveraged with matching grants, donations, in-kind contributions, dedicated community project budgets, and an extraordinary contribution of volunteer time to grow local greenway trails throughout the region.

 

“We are truly blessed with the wide and varied network of outdoor recreational trails we’ve collaboratively developed, built and maintained over the years,” says Jen Bellhouse, Executive Director of the STA. “While we understand there are a few disappointed folks that we aren’t hosting the in-person Trails Party this year, rest assured that something new is in the works, and stay tuned for an exciting announcement in coming months”.


The Shuswap Trail Alliance auction committee thanks, and invites, everyone throughout the region to join them for the 2024 Online Shuswap Trails Fundraiser. They look forward to seeing you online February 2 -11 and as always in-person on our excellent trails, whether you are a hiker, biker, skier, or a casual walker.
